Education (Scotland) Act 2016

Section 6: Parental involvement

25.Section 6 amends section 2 of the Scottish Schools (Parental Involvement) Act 2006 (the “2006 Act”) so as to insert a new subsection (4A), requiring an education authority to publish its strategy for parental involvement prepared under section 2(1) of that Act. An education authority must also publish any such strategy revised by it under section 2(3)(b) of the 2006 Act.

26.Subsection (3) inserts a new section 2A into the 2006 Act, requiring an education authority to prepare and publish an annual report on the activities undertaken by the authority during “the relevant period” in pursuance of the general policies contained within the strategy. The “relevant period” is defined as meaning the 12 month period ending with the day on which the annual report is published. The section restates duties previously set out under section 5 of the 2000 Act (repealed by section 2(3) of this Act).
